Fabulous Fashion Trends for the Year 2017

Updated on June 9, 2017

Fashion is about creating trends. Each season brings new trends to the fashion industry. These trends are not entirely new; every trend that we are introduced today has previously been seen in history.

Right now, most pieces are really comebacks from the 70s and 90s. Read on to know more about them.

"Off-The-Shoulder" Trend

A fusion of femininity and sexy – from shirtdresses to flirty tops, they are everywhere.

The off-shoulder top has been “in” for the past couple of years but recently they have made a big splash & started hitting up our favorite stores offering a wide range of prints from beachy floral ones to a bit more formal-the classic “striped”.

Everyone is wearing them- from your favorite fashion bloggers to the models and celebs.

Things To Keep in Mind

  1. Bright shades like yellow and blue will make you look summer-ready.
  2. Opt for beachy and floral prints like Palm leaves, cactus, watermelon.
  3. Accessorize your outfit with Chokers and layered necklaces.

The "Mules" Trend

Mule, is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed.

These shoes are a fad and every few years they come in and rock the runways. There is something so laid-back about these slip-ons and surprisingly they work with a lot of things: from cropped pants to midi skirts/dresses.

We’ve been seeing all the high profile celebrities slaying them for a while now.

Flat mules, pastel mules, heeled mules, embroidered mules— Mules are going to be in 2017.


Things To Keep in Mind

  1. Pair them with a pair of cropped pants to show off the mules.
  2. Wear Pointed mules as shoes with pointed toes lengthen your legs and make you look taller.

With good basics you'll have endless options.

Beautiful and intricate embroideries make everything quirky!

The "Embroidered Patchwork" trend

One of the favorites – the bohemian patchwork trend.

There’s something about patchwork that its addition to anything ranging from blouses to shoes instantly makes the outfit more quirky and modern.

Whether you have seen them on bomber jackets or the classic vans, there is no denying that they go with everything.

Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.

Return of the "Bell-sleeves"

The classic 70s bell-sleeves are making a comeback. A twist to normal sleeves, they add flounce to your outfit.

This style is what some may call as the Bohemian chic has a feminine and free spirit.

They have been on-the-radar for quite a few time, we've seen many celebs rocking feminine bell sleeves top at Coachella. They give this earthy look that’s perfect for the summer.

From long and flared to short and cuffed, or even frills to asymmetrical hem there is a bell-sleeve out there for everyone.

Thing To Keep in Mind

  1. Petite frames should keep in mind while wearing this trend that this style is quite baggy and can overwhelm your outfit. So keep in mind to pick sleeves according to your body type.
  2. As the top is wide and baggy keep your bottom half streamlined. Skinny jeans or leggings look great with this trend.

Elegance!

The "Scallops" Trend

Personally, one of my favorites, the scallop trend is back! Subtle scalloped edges around the hemlines/necklines of shorts, dresses makes everything look makes everything elegant.

The presence of such minor details can really uplift just about any look. This summer rock the scallop trend with shorts, bikins, collars.

"Micro-Florals"

Like every year, the floral trend is ruling the spring-summer season. And I’m sure that all of you own at least one trusty floral piece in your wardrobe that you reach for every summer.

There is so much you can do with it – From that summer party dress that is sure to make everyone talk to a floral jumpsuit for your date, you can’t go wrong with floral.

Summer of '17 is doing floral a little differently: the micro-print way.

Own it.

I’m not a fashion expert but I like to flip through magazines and scroll through my Instagram feed occasionally.

Hopefully, this article will give you some ideas on what to add to your wardrobe. I know everyone has their unique sense of style, and I would suggest that the best thing is to incorporate the new trends into your own style by adding twists to make it your own.


What are you looking forward to this year ?
